20-year-old David Sirvydis will make his debut in the world’s strongest basketball league next season.

ESPN journalist Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Lithuanian player has signed a three-year contract with the Detroit Pistons Club.

This information was confirmed by ESPN by Lithuanian agents Michaelis Tellemas and Marius Rutkauskas.

James Edwards, journalist for The Athletic, also confirmed the information published by Wojnarowski, noting that the final year of the contract was not guaranteed.

Sirvydis became the fourth Lithuanian in the NBA, where he was joined by Jonas Valančiūnas, Domantas Sabonis and Ignas Brazdeikis, who competed here.

Lithuania was invited by the Dallas Mavericks to the 2019 NBA Rookie Exchange with the 37th call-up, but rights to the player were immediately transferred to the Pistons.

This season, Sirvydis has started two games at the Hapoel Club in Jerusalem and the Champions League. The average basketball player who spends 10 minutes on the court scores a total of 1 point.

Last season, basketball player Vilnius “Rytas” with a height of 204 cm scored 6.6 points in 15 minutes, bounced 2.8 balls and scored 5.7 utility points.

Sirvydis played his last match on 11 November, when he met club CSP Limoges.
